Problems with having an early Spring.

We had no Winter here last year. In fact, the day before the First Day of Spring it was 85 degrees outside. As I feared, it has been necessary to start cutting the grass more than a month earlier than usual. Now more yard work is required along with a special project I'm working on to make some heavy cap rocks for the new stone wall I had rebuilt. All this takes time and I haven't had any to spare to take new pictures, which I'm sure is the main reason people visit this blog. I hope to have the project done in a few weeks so please check back for the updates.

Thanks for visiting and for all your nice comments about my wonderful Rottweilers.

Some new pictures of our happy crew.

Here is a nice shot of two of our Rotties. The smaller one in the background was a Christmas gift and the larger one in the foreground is our pride and joy. His name is Ruff.
This next picture is our oldest Rottweiler, Axl, whom we adopted 2 1/2 years ago when he was almost 8 years old. I know when he is happy because he smiles and his eyes seem to twinkle.
And here is Axl and Ruff. They have been best friends since the day we brought Axl into our home. Axl is 10 1/2 years old now and Ruff is only 5 and they have two different personalities. Ruff is very strong and filled with boundless energy, always excited and just waiting to give anyone he meets a ton of kisses. Axl is quiet, gentle and reserved. I'm not sure if he is the product of his training as a service dog or his breeding but he has been a perfect companion to my wife and seems to know how much she needs him.
Axl takes lots of naps all day long because he works so hard.
And here is a picture taken today of the two boys taking an after-breakfast nap on a rainy Sunday morning. And why not? There's nothing else to do when the weather outside is nasty.
